Welcome to the online home of Cheshire Dance Centre, one of Connecticut's premiere schools of dancing instruction. Under the artistic direction of Betty Seibert, we offer professional training in classical ballet, modern, tap, hip-hop and more, for all ages and levels of experience. Join us to discover where fun meets artistry and imagination becomes learning.
Welcome to Fall Term 2014-15! We look forward to our 20th year in Cheshire and sharing it with all of you. If you are a returning student - welcome back, and if you are new to CDC - make yourself at home!
First Term is only 17 weeks long and continues into January for four weeks after the Holiday Break! Please note the studio calendar for all days the studio may be closed, parent visitation week, installment tuition due dates, and any other pertinent information.
Watch highlights from the upcoming Cecchetti Ballet Theatre’s Nutcracker and experience the magic as the dancers invite audience members (ages 4 and up) to learn the choreography and perform as newly trained soldiers or spirited mice from the battle scene!
